While Apple's rumors were busy speculating on what might come under the upcoming Apple Worldwide Developer Conference keynote, the company surprised everyone today by launching new 13- and 15- inch MacBook Pro models which are the fastest ever. Powered by Intel's 8th and 9th generation processors, the highest models have eight eight cores for the first time in an Apple laptop.
MacBook Pros have the same design as previous models, although the company has a lot to enjoy MacBook users everywhere – updated problematic butterfly keyboards with a new design. Apple has apparently changed the material of the butterfly mechanism so that the problems some users have experienced (double or missed keystrokes) are significantly reduced.
The biggest changes are under the hood. The 13-inch models use up-to-date quad-core processors, with the top of the line (configured to order) powered by an 8.8 generation Intel Core i7 processor with 4.7 GHz Turbo Boost. 13-inch comes with 512GB SSD storage standard, upgradeable to 2TB.
The 15-inch models can use six or eight-core processors. Configured to order, a top-15-inch MacBook Pro can be equipped with a 2.4 GHz 8-core Intel Core i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 5.0 GHz, 32 GB 2400 MHz DD4 memory and a full 4 TB SSD storage.  The price starts at $ 1,799 for the 13-inch quad-core MacBook Pro, $ 2,399 for the 15-inch 6-core model and $ 2,799 for the 15-inch 8-core model. In case you are curious, a packed 15-inch MacBook Pro with a 9-generation Intel Core i9 8GHz processor, Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz, 32GB 2400MHz DDR4 memory, is a Radeon Pro Vega 20 With 4GB HBM2 memory and 4TB SSD storage costs you a cool $ 6,549 …
The new MacBook Pros are in stores today or can be ordered online for delivery within days.
